[PATCH] memory hotadd fixes: change find_next_system_ram's return value manner
KAMEZAWA Hiroyuki [Sat, 5 Aug 2006 19:14:59 +0000 (12:14 -0700)]
find_next_system_ram() returns valid memory range which meets requested area,
only used by memory-hot-add.

This function always rewrite requested resource even if returned area is not
fully fit in requested one.  And sometimes the returnd resource is larger than
requested area.  This annoyes the caller.  This patch changes the returned
value to fit in requested area.
